This deliverable analyses the digital switchover roadmap in Europe and surveys the trends in the TVWS market for different European countries in order to identify technically and economically viable COGEU application scenarios. D2.1 also investigates the technology, regulation/policy and economic aspects related to the cognitive access to TVWS in Europe.(More)
Availability of modern, reliable and offering a wide range of services wireless communication systems is crucial for the effective operation of Public Protection and Disaster Relief (PPDR) agencies during the emergency situations. This paper presents the elements of the financial-economic analysis for acquiring and operating PPDR communication systems by(More)
This paper presents high level design concepts for the control plane (C-plane) of the upcoming 5G networks, in the framework of Fixed-Mobile Convergence (FMC). This control plane is enabled by SDN and NFV technologies in order to offer a very flexible environment able to optimally deploy network infrastructure(s) that will cope with multiple service(More)
During this last decade, mesh networks have experienced strong growth due to their ability to provide an additional and complementary support for existing infrastructure communication systems. In such a network, routers are supposed to be fixed for short (e.g. public safety deployment) or long (e.g. network operator extension) period. This relative(More)
In this paper, we propose a new approach for modeling and evaluating reliability of complex public safety network. Based on Bayesian network structure, we develop a general construction methodology for network representation and design. Using probability propagation techniques, the reliability of the system can be obtained in a straightforward manner. To(More)
—This paper presents a study on development and evolution of Public Protection and Disaster Relief (PPDR) communication networks in the perspective of the next 15-20 years. A need for modern, reliable mobile communications systems for PPDR offering a wide range of services, yet harmonized, is commonly recognized at both country and European level. There are(More)
—This paper presents an adaptive and controllable framework to optimize the transport of IP packets in military MANETs. The HBH (Hop-By-Hop) protocol that we propose uses a combination of hop-by-hop reliability and congestion mitigation mechanisms. Its major advantage is to run any standard IP application unmodified on top of the network. Moreover it is(More)
